Juicing recipes

Want to make healthy juicing recipes at home? Store-bought juice can be expensive, and you don’t get the added benefit of using veggies from your produce drawer. Homemade juicing recipes are fast and easy: and cut down on food waste!

Even better, you don’t even need a juicer. All you need is a blender to make juice at home! It’s helpful to have a high speed blender, but it’s not required. Before we get started, let’s talk about the health behind juicing.

Benefits of juicing…and caveats

First off: what are the actual benefits of juicing? Drinking juice recipes is not a cure-all. In fact, we do not recommend juice cleanses (see below). Here’s an outline of the pros and cons of juicing recipes:

  • Juice benefits you may have heard of are over-hyped. Celery juice does not make you skinnier or cure diseases. Don’t drink juice to try to cure specific ailments.
  • Avoid juice cleanses. Research associates juice cleanses with disordered eating and a negative relationship with food (read more here).
  • Drinking vegetables as juice gives you benefits, but no fiber. It’s actually even better to eat the whole vegetable.
  • Most veggies and fruits are low in calories but high in nutrients. Drinking their juice gives you an infusion of vitamins!
  • Juicing recipes are a good alternative to soda or other sugary drinks. Instead of drinking the empty calories and sugar in a soda, reaching for this juice is hands down a better choice!

So, if you’re ready to enjoy the nutrients of fresh fruits and veggies, use up your produce, and have a healthy alterative to sugary drinks — let’s go!

Ingredients

Scale

For the carrot juice

  • 1 large apple, chopped
  • 1 large orange, peeled
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the celery juice

Instructions

  1. In a blender: Place the ingredients (except citrus juice) in a blender. Blend on high until pureed and a juice forms. Pass the juice through a fine mesh sieve or a nut milk bag to strain out the pulp (skip this step for the watermelon juice). Discard the pulp (or use: see ideas above). Stir in the fresh citrus juice (add more if desired). Drink immediately over ice, or chill before drinking.
